For 'Lagos Pepper Soup', his second solo release and an integration of all of his diverse musical influences, he picked a core band of Terreon Gully, Aaron Parks, Etienne Stadwijk, and enlisted the talents of Angélique Kidjo, Dianne Reeves Music, Regina Carter, Joe Lovano, Laura Mvula, Lionel Loueke, Grégoire Maret, Becca Stevens, Brandee Younger, Robert Mitchell and Onaje Jefferson, alongside top studio arrangers David Metzger, Joseph Joubert and Jason Michael Webb to realise his vision of what he calls Cinematic Afrobeat. His own virtuoso melodic bass playing shines throughout.
